      Great shot, really... just a pitty it is photoshoped (a guy just behind the Barack's head has been erased...see original picture just after) :

      Open debate : could we alterate (a little) the truth for improve aesthetic ???

      Belle photo, vraiment....juste dommage qu'elle ait été photoshopé (le type dans le fond, derrière la tête de Barack, a été effacé : voir la photo originale juste après)....

      @ L'album de Georges : clearly, it's a different photo.

      @ L'album de Georges: It doesn't appear PS'd. It's a different shot from a lower perspective. You can see the very top of the other sitting guy's head just above Barack's.

      It looks like he was praying for victory. This picture seems to capture the tone of his campaign which was hope for the future. Wonderful pic!

      God bless the american people for electing you, and that same god will always protect you president obama. That same god that brought the children of israel from egypt, he will deliver you to second term. He will protect you from all harm and danger. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Believe in his word (The bible), it works. I am a witness. (Not jehovah witness, smile. Mona from liberia

      Have my deepest condolence for the death of "Tutu". He raised a son to free the world. Let light perpetual shine on her.
      I will always pray for President Obama and his family, especially Sasha and Malia. There is a saying that "the God who brought you this far, will not leave you alone". He will always be there for you, just call on Him when in need. Put God to a test, when things seem difficult, try Him, pray and wait for answer, then you will know the wonders of God. Be bless. mona from liberia

      He looks so somber, like it sunk in what a difficult job he's just inherited. The weight of the world are on his shoulders.

      This picture of the elected president of the USA reflects so many things.
      Nobody can say what he was thinking about at that particular moment in time. One can imagine the feeling of being the winner of something big and important but never at that level, with that massive victory and with the task that stands in front of him.
      I see preoccupation, I see stress too, but the ensemble gives me hope. Call me stupid if you want but I see a man I can trust.
      For all you Americans, I say, well done and congratulations!

      May we live up to the call of our President and become the nation we are to be.

      I remember how much McCain's concession speech moved me - Great to see the same moment from Obama's perspective

      The Dictionary is the only place where SUCESS cames before WORK. Congratulations Mr Obama.

      Congratulations for your great family, for being a father, husband, son, and having time to help us make the world a better day.

      Thinking about how he's going to have to clean up Bush's mess.
